Interaction with Guests
Once a booking is made, I will contact the guest with a short welcome note and answer any questions. A week before the trip I'll contact you again to confirm an arrival time. Through email you'll receive a guide on how to get to the apartment.
The neighborhood is in the middle of the city center, but in a very quite street. You are surrounded by medieval buidlings and cozy restaurants and shops.
In the apartment there's a list with all our tips and the sights.
You can get almost anywhere on foot in Ghent. The sights are all close together. From the stain you can take a tram to the center. There are also several busses. You can also rent a bike or take a trip with a boat on the rivers in Ghent.
Ghent is a car free zone, so it's wise to park your car in a parking lot. Parking on the street side is very pricy.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the first floor (USA: second floor). There's a small stairs that leads to the apartment.
Public parking is about 3 min walk from the apartment for €10/day (Vrijdagsmarkt).

We hope you keep our apartment nice and tidy. Think of our neighbors when you decide to host a singalong. Please, don't smoke inside the apartment. There are no pets allowed.
We liked our stay in this apartment. It was very well equipped and had the luxury of a small patio terrace. Beds and bath were especially nice. Friday and saturday night some street noise from late bar visitors, but that is part of inner city life. Gent is lively, historic and authentic. Ben's parents took care of us, thanks for that. We all had a great weekend!
Ben's apartment was amazing! The overall feel of the place made our stay really special. It was clean and comfortable (especially the beds!). Everything was provided for. Its location in a quiet area off of the main streets of Gent made it convenient for us to make it a base in Belgium. We loved Gent all the more because of Ben and his parents' attention to their guests. I cannot recommend the place highly enough! :)
Нас было 7 человек! 4 взрослых и 3 ребенка (1 год, 4 года и 5 лет). Квартира имеет несколько перепадов высоты, но никто не пострадал :) В квартире есть все, и даже книги, диски, виниловые пластинки, термос, термочашки, которые мы с большим удовольствием использовали. Для малышки была детская кроватка и винтажный детский стульчик! Очень уютно, как дома. Даже лучше :) Очень рекомендую. Спасибо Ben, Johan и Yolande!
We were 7 people! 4 adults and 3 children (1 year, 4 years and 5 years). Apartment has some floor height, but no one was injured :) The apartment has everything, and even books, CDs, vinyl records, thermoses, we have used with great pleasure. There was a cot and vintage high chair for baby! Very cozy, as at home. Even better :) Highly recommended. Thank you Ben, Johan and Yolande!
Na een uitgebreide en duidelijke uitleg van Ben hoe we het appartement konden bereiken stonden Johan en Yolande ons op te wachten. We waren een uurtje later vanwege file onderweg, maar dat was geen enkel probleem. Deze lieve mensen lieten ons het appartement zien en gaven ons een welkom gevoel. Het appartement is super, wat een ligging zo in hartje centrum en een heerlijke patio om buiten te zitten. Het appartement was heel schoon en alles rook zo lekker, vooral het zachte beddegoed. Heerlijke bedden en fijne douche. Gent is prachtig en sfeervol. Maar daar heeft dit heerlijke huisje ook zeker aan bijgedragen. Ben, Johan en Yolande, hartelijk dank voor jullie goede zorgen. Wij hebben (website hidden) Esther & Ime
Our experience in Ghent was enhanced many times over because of the address we were at! Ben's apartment is chic, comfortable and luxurious even. His folks - the charming Johan and Yolande - made us feel very welcome and helped with luggage, taxi SOS etc. We had a wonderful stay and hope to be back because the apartment is conveniently located close to the tram way, historical city, markts (i.e. markets in Flemmish) and lanes full of surprises like the graffiti lane. We hope to return and next time we might stay a day longer just to savour the apartment!
We were welcomed by Ben's lovely parents who explained everything about the apartment. It was a beautiful apartment with everything you would ever need. The beds were super comfy and the shower was wonderful. Location was brilliant as we could walk to where we wanted to go. We loved the local bar De Dulle Griet - loads of beers to choose from and friendly barmen. The information included in the apartment allowed us to choose places to eat and also places to visit. We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to visit again sometime in the near future to continue to visit the places in Ghent that we could not fit into this visit.
My husband and I were down right spoiled while staying at Ben's AMAZING apartment. We were greeted by his parents on our arrival, and they were so sweet and accommodating. Communicating with Ben was a breeze, he was always very quick to get back to my husband, and he gave us great detailed information on how to find the apartment. Now on to the apartment! What a fantastic space! My husband and I did not want to leave. It was immaculate, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and in a perfect location. Also, that bathtub is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I cannot recommend this apartment enough!!!
